Sounds like a cool project. I would advise against a motor on each wheel mostly for safety reasons. It's OK for small light electric vehicles like personal mobility scooters and Power Wheels that go like 5 mph. But on a highway going car, if you get in a runaway situation with one of the motors either from a welded contactor or controller malfunction you could be in trouble. You also wouldn't be able to use the same polarity on both motors. If you do you'll be spinning around.Hey guys,
I have had my Porsche 911 in the garage for a week and have started removing all the crap I don't need. It doesn't have an engine or transmission.
I was searching for a transmission and had a thought...
Instead of a warp 9 or 11... Why not go with 2 transwarp 7's.
1 driving each rear wheel with a shorty drive shaft. I haven't been able to find many conversions with a drive motor for each wheel.
Any idea what it would do for my performance/range?
lastly - finding a Porsche tranny isn't easy, and what sais it has to be a porsche? I have lots of room and I can pretty much make any transmission fit since it is going to have to be custom mounts anyway. I was thinking about using a VW tranny since there are so many adapter plates already designed. Anybody know which VW tranny I should go with? Prefferably one as bulletproof as possible.
Thanks for any feedback,
